    I'm Swedish and these are almost perfect renditions of my favorite cafe treat: chokladbollar. Pearl sugar is hard to find in the US, though, so you can roll them in sweetened coconut flakes or coarse grind turbinado sugar, too.  -  29 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent! Very quick and easy! Was extremely popular with the group I made it for; the men especially loved it! Texture is a bit unusual, but is not a deterrent considering the wonderful taste and ease of preparation. You might want to double the recipe - it only makes about 24 balls IF you don't eat much dough during preparation! (The dough is delicious!) The way these taste, 24 balls just isn't enough!  -  27 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these for a Swedish themed Christmas Party...they disappeared very quickly! Everyone asked for the recipe. These are SO good, and so easy to make (it's almost embarrasing!). I used Sugar in the Raw (Turbinado Sugar)as I could not find pearl sugar, but was later able to find it at a Swedish gift shop. I'm making them again today with the pearl sugar! Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe with us!!  -  08 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
